:: PAST EVENTS ::

February 3, 2019

Playing For Others drum circle/dance jam!

What started out as a fun drum circle/jam with the wonderful folks at #playingforothers today, ended up a totally rockin #danceparty !

January 15, 2019

Any local folk want to join us this evening and help facilitate this family support drumming with The Center For Community Transitions ❘ Families Doing Time? 
– Tuesday, January 15th from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm. at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church (3200 Park Road Charlotte, NC 28209) and we are preparing for 60-80 people. 
– Their theme for the year is “Strengthening Family, Strengthening Me.” 
– They will have carribean food (you are welcome to eat there) and decor, and the drum circle would align well with both themes.
Need help setting up and maintaining the circle. Some co-facilitation is welcomed. Please email scott@drumstrong.org
